Machinery Pete: Low-hour 4WD tractors

GREG PETERSON 04/10/2013 @ 9:44am Greg Peterson writes "Machinery Pete" column for Successful Farming magazine and appears on the Machinery Show on RFD-TV, talking about trends in the used equipment market

I’m covering a farm retirement auction in southern Ohio Saturday. The sale is near Hamersville, OH and features (3) super lower hour tractors. Here’s the list:

  • 2007 JD 9220 4WD with 683 hours
  • 2007 JD 8130 MFWD with 375 hours
  • 2009 JD 6430 MFWD Premium with 224 hours & JD 673 loader

Wow, like I said, (3) tractors with very low hours. Here’s a pic of the 2007 JD 9220 4WD with 683 hours.

So what is the record high auction sale price I’ve seen on a JD 9220 4WD tractor? In the U.S. it’s $166,000 on a December 6, 2011 farm auction in northeast Iowa for a 2006 JD 9220 with 421 “1 owner” hours in excellent condition. I was there at that auction and shot Youtube video of the JD 9220 selling. Here’s the video:

The highest auction sale price I’ve seen overall on a JD 9220 4WD tractor came from up north of the border, on a farm auction in east-central Saskatchewan on April 7, 2012. That was a 2005 model 9220 with 1,551 hours in “excellent” condition, sold for $168,000 (CAD). Good 4WD’s have been “red hot” sellers up in Canada the past 2-3 years, particularly on the Springtime auctions.
